Preventive Work With Pre-School Children and Their Parents: Foster Family Day Care

By Bertel Gordon

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1962

The author describes the work of the Foster Family Day Care Service operated by the Jewish Child Care Association of New York. Parents who demonstrate need for day-care services are paired with foster families willing to provide day care, as a sort of part-time foster parenting. This benefits parents and children not only as a provision of day care services, but as a supportive model for cohesive family functioning. The author illustrates the workings of the program with case study examples.
